Personalised One Hour Familiarisation with NELSON
This fully descriptive tour acquaints you with the city, its surrounds and an all encompassing view and brief commentary on the history, development, and, coastal features and highlights as we observe the panorama out to the Mount Arthur Range and right around the region to Separation Point, where Tasman Bay merges with Golden Bay and beyond. This tour is available at any pre-booked time during daylight hours (weather permitting). The tour includes historic landmarks and places, examples of quite brilliant and exquisite building restoration, and, of course, the geographic Centre of New Zealand. Up to Walters Bluff Lookout for panoramic view and comprehensive description of the overall Tasman Bay region from Mackays Bluff to Separation Point. We then travel on through the Port area (New Zealand’s largest fishing port) to Tahunanui Beach, the residential suburb of Stoke and then a circuit of Richmond town (a mainly rural support centre). We then return via the Saxton Field Sport and Recreation Complex (an exciting example of community co-operation and development) to our starting point.
Cost: $48.00 per person (Min $90.00) and Group Rates can be negotiated. Your enquiries are always welcome.
Nelson Provincial Tour
Allow 4 hours + as we never like to rush our visitors and there will inevitably be lots of questions as we move through the region. We expand on our basic tour by proceeding out through the Moutere region with its vast array of cropping, mainly market gardens and various fruits, and, of course grapes and more grapes as we move through the winery belt. We then carry on through the Pine Forests on the Moutere Hills till we come through the back road to Motueka. On our return we will stop off here for a break (or hold off till Mapua if you chose) as we return from our furthermost point – Kaiteriteri Beach. Known for its truly golden sands, beautiful beaches and of course the starting point for the Abel Tasman Track and National Park at Marahau. Numerous tour operators base here for days trips by launch, canoe and kayak for the more adventurous. Our return trip, as mentioned heads through Motueka and the quaint seaside resort of Mapua. This rapidly growing township is renowned for its working crafts, cafes, restaurants and micro brewery. We assure you this tour is a memorable insight into our province and one you will recall most favourably. It is great value at $95.00 per person (Min$180.00) and once again Group Rates are negotiable. Your only added cost is your break at your chosen stop.
